Going To Disneyland!

by Heng-Cheong Leong, MyAppleMenu

This post has nothing to do with Apple or Macintosh. :-)

But, me and my wife and my daughter are going to Disneyland! The air tickets has been booked, the hotel has been reserved, all we have to do now is to wait. (And for daddy to figure out how to pay for all these.)

The last time I was inside Disney's magic/manipulation, it was the early '90s. I was also just a college student with not a lot of money. Not to say I have a lot of dough now, but it's nice to not worry too much about spending some extra money so that my daughter can have breakfast with Mickey Mouse. (At 5, I don't think she's at the age of fully realizing that is just a man in a mouse suit... I hope.)

So, if you have any tips for me regarding Hong Kong Disneyland, can you please e-mail me? Thanks!

Oh, and MyAppleMenu will shut down for a week sometime in June. :-)
